YOUNG TURKS ARE ACTIVE
Naturally the Young Turks, some
of the delegates say, have worked very
hard to regain power. Their activity
has been especially marked in the
army, but it is not believed the bulk
of the army is ready to support them,
and these think it is impossible that
a counter revolution will undo what
ever was achieved by the Young Turks
Those of the delegates who do not
think It wise to wait longer, say they
consider it a pity to let the present
unique opportunity pass without
giving Turkey a blow, taking advan
tage of the confusion ensuing by reason
of tho revolution in Constantinople.
As a whole, however, the allies in
tend, if possible, to wait for Turkey's
reply to the powers and if it is un
satisfactory to present an ultimatum
to the Turkish delegates demanding a
categorical answer concerning the dis
position of Adrlanople and the Aegean
Islands. Failing to obtain satisfaction,
the armistice then will be denounced
and hostilities resumed.
The Turkish delegation still was

nople tonight It finds itself In an em
barrassing position, as Reschid Pasha
and Selih Bey are old Turks and Os
man Nizami Pasha, the other delegate,
is a Young Turk. Nizami, who also is
ambassador to Germany, says he hopes
Germany will not abandon Turkey to
the mercy of the other powers at this
time, as the new ministry contains
strong pro-German elemente.
PROTEGE OF GERMAXV
Mahmoud Schefket Pasha, the new
errand vizier and minister of war, was
a pupil and protege of the German
field marshal, General Baron yon der
Goltz. He did not receive a command
In the last war because Kiamil Pasha
considered him too German.
Enver Bey after the revolution in
1909 went to Germany as military at
tache to the Turkish embassy, where
he remained until the war with Italy
broke out. In event of a resumption
of hostilities he is indicated as the
natural commander in chief of the
Enver Bey organized the guerrilla
warfare in the war with Italy, which
f-aused the Italians much trouble and
heavy losses in Tripoli.
GERMAXY FAVORS MINISTRY
Tt is believed that the new Turkish
ministry will have as a supporter Herr
yon Jagow, the German minister of
foreign affairs. In the Turco-Italian
war Yon Jagow, as German ambassador
to Italy, protected Turkish subjects
there and energetically used his influ
ence in an endeavor to induce Premier
Oiolitti to abandon the idea of com
plete Italian sovereignty over Libya.

Arguing When Killed
CONSTANTINOPLE, Jan. 24.—-Naziin
Pasha, the commander of the Turkish
army, received his death wound while
expostulating with a crowd of dem
onstrators for having become embroiled
in a conflict at the grand vljeierate.
The official version of the affray, which
Is termed a "regrettable Incident,"
was issued tonight.
When the demonstrators, it say?,

bullet striking Mohamad Nedjif, one

made him respected even by his politi

proves that the demonstrators desired I

which led to the resignation of the
cabinet of Said Pasha.
The views held in official circles with
regard to the situation between Tur
key and the Balkan allies may be set
forth as follows:
The Turkish government not
desire a resumption of hostilities, but
the European powers are yet less anx
ious to witness a renewal of the war
owing to the danger of possible com
plications: Turkey realizes her con
dition of financial penury but this con
dition is chronic to her and means
always can be found for keeping
On the other hand, from a military
standpoint-Turkey is in a better con
dition than ever to wage war with ad
vantage, especially as the government
believes the forces of the allies are
near the point of exhaustion. Never
theless the porte would prefer to avoid
further bloodshed if this is possible
with honor and the possession of Ad
rianople by the allies is not insisted
Official circles are confident that no
coercive pressure by the powers need
be apprehended or threats of isolated
action by Russia taken very seriously
owing to the possibility of such ac
tion bringing about European compli
cations. Under these circumstances it
is felt here that the allies may come
to realize that Adrianople is not in
dispensable to their well being and
especially when they observe that it is
the determination of the entire nation
to fight rather than to surrender the
Great Excitement Prevails
LONDON. Jan. 24.—At the head
quarters of all the peace delegations
the greatest activity and excitement
prevailed today. Cipher telegrams
from Sofia, Belgrade, lAthens and Cet
tinje crossed messages from London to
those capitals during the early morn
ing hours. Before noon the heads of
the four delegations had held several
meetings to discuss the situation.
The allies seem disposed to consider
the revolution in Constantinople as an
affront to the European powers more
than to themselves. Therefore they
think that the powers are entitled to
make the first move. Whatever it may
be. and whatever its result, it can not
prejudice their future action, they de
Messages received from various
points in the Balkans show that ne
gotiations concerning the next de
velopment are proceeding actively be
tween the capitals of the allies. The
delegations can not be sure as to what
will be their ultimate attitude until
they have received simultaneous and
identical instructions from their re
WAR TO BE RESUMED
The delegates, however, consider
that the resumption of the war in the
course of w*xt week is almost in
evitable, evfii if the powers should
agree on active intervention.
"The blood of Nazim Pasha," said
Rechad Pasha, leader of the Turkish
peace delegates today, "is on the heads
of the European powers. Their unfair
and precipitate attempt to force Tur
key into the surrender of Adrianople
has borne its inevitable fruit."
The Turkish plenipotentiary declared
that the events of yesterday were to
be expected by any one who knows
Turkey, the patriotism of Its people
and the spirit of its army.
The Ottoman spokesman pointed out
that only two of the European ambas
sadors in London know through exper
ience what Turkey really is. These are
Paul Cambon, French ambassador, and
Marquis di Francavilla. Italian ambas
sador. Both of these, according to the
Turks, tried to dissuade their col
leagues from driving the Turks to ex
tremities. He said the Italian ambas
sador used this expression:
AVIIX BECOME WILD AAI3IALS
"If we force Turkey to give up Adri
anople and her Aegean islands, the
Turks will turn into wild animals."
Osman Nizami Pasha declared:
"Now both the allies and the powers
have had a taste of what Turkey is
capable of doing, of what resistance
she is able to offer and what sacrifices
sho is ready to endure. Nothing is
more dangerous than a wounded lion."
There are two currents of opinion
among the representatives of the Bal
kan league, one of these is in favor
of asking Sir E«'ward Grey as honorary
president of thr- peace ronferencr im
mediately to convoke a session of the
delegates at which the resumption of
hostilities will be declared. The other
urges that the powers should lirst be
allowed to deal with Turkey.
The European governments alrearly
are in communication with regard to
the situation. The view here is that
the reply of Turkey to the note of
the powers must bo awaited before
any drastic action can be inaugurated.
Lack of information as to the real
meaning and scope of the movement
in Constantinople preludes in the offi
cial view anything in the nature of
